A Brief History of REITs in Singapore

The Monetary Authority of Singapore first introduced rules to regulate the REIT sector in 1999. In 2002, CapitaMall Trust became the first REIT launched in Singapore. 

Over the next 8 years, more than 20 REITs listed on the Singapore Exchange Mainboard. In 2005 and 2007, the MAS released consultation papers, which led to enhanced regulations in the areas of REIT approvals, valuation rules, capital structure, tax waivers and facilitation of overseas expansion for REITs. These regulations were intended to help promote the Singapore REIT market by providing protection to unitholders.   

As of October 2010, Singapore was the 3rd largest market in Asia for REITs with Japan and Australia being the first and second largest respectively by market capitalization. As a whole, Asia consists of 21% of the global market capitalization for REITs, smaller than the US (60%) but larger than Europe (19%).
